How it Works

Step

01

In-Person Consultation in Your Home

Every project begins with an in-person consultation where we’ll meet each other in person to ensure that we are a great fit. During this meeting, we’ll get to see your space and discuss, in detail, a number of important topics, including your goals for your home, your style/color preferences, your lifestyle, and how we will work together. If you have a spouse/partner, it is important that they attend this meeting as well, as we have learned through experience that spouses/partners often have different ideas as to what their ideal space looks like. This is typically a 2-hour meeting and we will often provide you with some immediate ideas for your project. The fee for this consultation is $250, which is deducted from your final project invoice should you move forward with our services.

Step

02

Letter of Agreement

Once you decide to move forward, we will ask you to electronically sign our Letter of Agreement and request a retainer payment so that we can begin working on your exciting project. Our Letter of Agreement will include the estimated number of designers hours need to complete the project, so you know up front approximately what you will pay for our services.

Step

03

Site Measurement / Trade Day

This will be the day when we will take all needed photos and measurements and we will also meet with the respective trades involved in the project (e.g., electricians, painters, etc.) to review the project scope and allow them to take their own images/measurements.

Step

04

Design Plan Presentation

This is definitely one of the most exciting days for our clients! During this 2-3 hour meeting, we will share our complete vision for your space, including floor plans, mood boards with all selected furnishings, color scheme selections, all samples (e.g., fabric, flooring, wallpaper), and elevations, as needed. Again, if you have a spouse/partner, it is imperative that they attend this meeting so we can ensure that they are also happy with the overall design. We will also collect additional needed deposits at this meeting so we begin the procurement process.

Step

05

Procurement Management

Our team handles all procurement of selected furnishings, which includes dealing with any supplier issues. All furnishings will be delivered to our receiver to be inspected and stored until all items have arrived.

Step

06

Construction Management

We will work with the selected trades to ensure that the order of work is done correctly. We will also provide you with an Installation Calendar so you are aware of who will be working in your home each day during the construction phase. We will stop by in-person periodically to ensure the work is proceeding as agreed upon.

Step

07

Budget Review (on larger projects)

For larger/lengthier projects, we will meet with you during the procurement and construction phase to ensure we are on track with the budget/timeline and make any adjustment as needed.

Step

08

Initial Installations

While the majority of furnishings will not be installed until Step 9, some installations may occur earlier, such as window treatments. We will work with you as needed to complete these installations as close to the final installation date as possible.

Step

09

Final Installation and Grand Reveal

This is when we finally get to install all of your new furnishings, hang artwork, and style your new space! At the grand reveal, you will get to see your completed space for the first time. We may include additional accessories that you didn’t pay for so your space is photo ready. If, after the photo shoot, you would like to keep the additional accessories, we will bill you accordingly. Following the grand reveal, we will arrange a time within the next week to come back and discuss any deficiencies and how they will be resolved.

Step

10

Professional Photography

We will work with you to find a date where we can have our photographer take pictures of your beautiful new space, which we will include in our portfolio and may use for advertising purposes.

A la carte consulting is also available to purchase in hourly blocks (3 hour minimum)
